The National Book Awards were this week and they were amazing! Here’s the breakdown as far as the awards and I’ve highlighted a few of the most incredible moments from the evening:

Fiction: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Nonfiction: Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi (his speech here)

Poetry: The Performance of Becoming Human by Daniel Borzutzky
